Highlight on the many artists that have sung about Clarks.

Sampler

Clarks in JamaicaFollowing Al Fingers’ excellent and in-depth look at Clarks and its Jamaica/UK connection comes its musical companion.

This 21 track compilation – 12 cuts on the vinyl edition – celebrates an iconic footwear and its role in Jamaican music and culture. The album showcases several tough tunes from the 80s, including Little John’s anthemic Clarks Booty, Laurel & Hardy’s driving Dangerous Shoes and Early B’s pulsating Pedestrian.

The most well-known Clarks tune today – Vybz Kartel’s smash hit Clarks from 2010 – is not included since the compilation is focused on old school reggae and dancehall. And that’s because Al Fingers wanted to show this deep-rooted love affair and highlight the many artists that have sung about Clarks several years before the Wurl Boss did.

So, put on your mesh marina, your three piece suit or khaki dress and your Clarks and you might be able to carry the swing.
